823: Guest Week: David Troupes (Buttercup Festival)
|Guest Week: David Troupes (Buttercup Festival)|
Title text: Guest comic by David Troupes of Buttercup Festival, who is living in that lovely tree outside your window.
This comic is a commentary on relationships. The woman Megan is perfectly happy sitting on the moon (not possible by the way) with Cueball, the person she loves. Cueball, however, is not completely happy until he pegs a former bully with a rock that he shoots from the moon with his slingshot.
Guest Week was a series of five comics written by five other comic authors. They were released over five consecutive days (Monday-Friday); not over the usual Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule.
The five comics are:
- 822: Guest Week: Jeph Jacques (Questionable Content)
- 823: Guest Week: David Troupes (Buttercup Festival)
- 824: Guest Week: Bill Amend (FoxTrot)
- 825: Guest Week: Jeffrey Rowland (Overcompensating)
- 826: Guest Week: Zach Weiner (SMBC)
- [Megan and Cueball are leaning against each other, sitting on top of a giant moon in a black star dotted sky. Trees are visible towards the bottom of the panel.]
- [The scene broadens.]
- Megan: I've never been so happy. I—
- Cueball: Hold on—that guy used to dump my notebooks in high school. Give me a moment. Try to keep the moon steady.
- [A rock hits a Cueball-like guy on the ground on the back of the head.]
- [The guy clutches the back of his head.]
- [Back to the moon again, where Cueball is leaning his head against Megan while holding a slingshot]
- Cueball: I've never been so happy.
